Make Collection home page "Start" accessible to people using screen readers.

We got the following email from a blind reader, making it clear (we confirmed by email) that the "Start" link only works to get sighted users reading the book online. This user could only find the PDF, and not the well structured HTML that allows screen readers to read the book.
The "Start" button needs to have some alt text that is very explicit and says something like "Start reading the online book here."

Hi. I can only find PDF's to access your book. I am blind and would like to use my screen reader to read it.
